Four Things To Ask Siding Contractors

siding contractorsTime and weather conditions take a toll on everything. And that especially includes your home. If you need to consider getting new siding for your home, here are four key questions to ask siding contractors before you start the project. 


Question 1. Ask About the Siding Installation Process

Siding is available in an incredible variety of colors, styles, and thicknesses. You can have the look of cedar siding, clapboard or dutch lap, to name just a few options, to create the look that is perfect for your home. Ask the siding installers about the installation process for the siding you select. How long does it take? Is it quick and painless? Is it a viable do-it-yourself project? What kind of complications could come up? It depends on the size of your home, but siding contractors can usually do the job in a week or two. 


Question 2. Ask About Maintaining the Siding

One big advantage to siding is that it is durable. Ask the siding contractors if it is easy to keep clean and easy to maintain. What does proper maintenance consist of, usually? Is it basically of soap and water, or is it more complicated? Can you do it yourself or do you need a professional to do it?


Question 3. Ask About Prices for the Siding

Some types of installed siding have a very low average price per square foot. This makes them among the least expensive materials used on the exterior of homes. Ask the siding contractors how much your siding will cost per square foot. Metal, wood, and stucco are relatively inexpensive, while cedar can cost a little more.


Question 4. Ask About the Warranty on the Siding

Be sure to ask the siding contractors and siding companies you talk to about the limited fade warranty, which usually applies to siding (except siding that is custom colored). Siding is a great choice for your home, because not only is it durable, it is also great for resale value. And this fact can go a long way in giving you peace of mind.


The good news from your siding contractors will be that siding is a great option to consider for your home. It is affordable, easy to install and available in a variety of textures and colors. Asking the right questions will ensure that you make a choice that will help maintain your home for years to come.

Side-Pro fixed an issue with some wavy sideboards on my home. The team that came out was fast, effective, professional -- and genuinely nice guys. They explained what they were doing, answered all my questions, and got the work done beautifully and ahead of schedule. Afterwards they followed up promptly to make sure I was satisfied and to let me know they were available for any future questions or concerns. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone needing similar work done.

Side Pro was a pleasure to work with from the start. I learned in the bid process that most siding and window companies are sales teams only and all the installation is sub-contracted out. It was important to me to use a firm that was accountable for the end to end job and Side Pro used full-time employees for my job. The sales person knew a lot about siding and gave me some great recommendations. He submitted a competitive price and then walked through the full job with me and the job foreman. Then the job foreman took over and was very responsive to all my questions and change orders over the course of project. The installation team was also excellent. They cleaned up every day and did really top notch work. I am very particular and they worked to understand what I was after and made it happen. Great job. The job site had COVID procedures posted, which were followed by the crew, and a safety officer dropped by on two occasions to check up on things. I honestly couldn't have asked for a better customer experience and recommend Side Pro to anyone considering new siding.

Side-Pro did a FANTASTIC job installing the Cemplank siding and Hardieboard trim on our new shop. The price was great and the work was top-notch. The two gentlemen doing the work were efficient and professional. Communication with DJ, the project advisor/estimator was very good. Overall I am very pleased and will definitely use them again! Highly recommended.

I am VERY satisfied! I called for a repair job. Several other companies either would not give an estimate, or could not do so for several months. I got the job done, as requested, within a couple weeks. Karl their repair specialist is pleasant to work with, as well as competent.

I needed crawl space vents installed with very short notice. Side-Pro set up an appointment and got the work done in a matter of days! The contractor who did the work busted his butt and was very nice. The work is excellent.
